Blend of 2014-2015 , fantastic spicy yeast aroma , with some straw like funk. Light carbonation gives a lemon fizz on the tongue, with a gentle, but long lasting bitter finish.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Blend of 11/12. Bought it back in 2012. Not a big fan of geuze but this was great. Aroma of apple, herbs, barnyard, lemon. Sweet upfront, really dry and of course tart in the aftertaste. Complex. Just enough carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma pleasant and typical of the style, albeit a bit soft to the nose. Appearance very hazy with thin, quickly disappearing white head. Remaining yeast sticking to the cork as if the bottle was kept horizontal, tilted down even. Taste only mildly sour, bitter aftertaste dominates, less complex than most gueuzes. More carbonated than most gueuzes too. Not the sour, mildly carbonated sensation I assosiate with the style (of which I am a big fan) After the carbonation has disappeared however, the taste improves: softer and more sour, aftertaste less bitter. Still not complex though. Maybe best to be drunk rather at room temperature than at cellar temperature ( winter).
